reviewed Hellboy (2004 movie). August 02, 2004
posted in Movie Hype
Hellboy Special Edition DVD
I've never read the "Hellboy" comics. I have nothing to base a comparison on as such, so I'll review this movie as a person who just happened to pick this one up not knowing what to …
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
Pros: Well written, exciting story, it's Harry Potter!     Cons: Dull in some places, Harry's moodiness     The Bottom Line: Another great Harry Potter book, but …

Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone
Naysayer after naysayer tries to write off this film, and those which followed, as well as the books, as fluff for kids. Others went as far to say that this franchise had satanic or evil qualities about …

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
"Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets" pulls off something that only "The Empire Strikes Back" has done. It's better than the first film! Not only is the story more interesting(though the first was …

The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
The extended versions of these movies are even better than the originals. They're so good, in fact, that I wish they would skip the standard edition and just go right to the extended one. Great movie, …

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
Pros: Great FX and cast.     Cons: Plays as a setup to the next film, may be to scary for some.     The Bottom Line: A classic tale that will delight fans of the …

Lord of the Rings_The Return of the King
The film, of course, is magnificent. Featuring the denouement of all that has come before, with great actors to play the parts, gorgeous visuals to enchant us, fantastic special effects, and a glorious …

Hellboy Special Edition DVD
This movie was highly entertaining though a little hard to follow. Not being familiar with the comics, may have been the reason for my difficulties in following the plot.Hellboy is found during a raid …
reviewed Excalibur (1981 film). May 23, 2004
Excalibur (1981)
At times the acting pushes the envelope a bit, especially Nigel Terry in the title role. But Helen Mirren defines erotic evil as Morganna, while Cherie Lunghi is equally appealing as the fair wife of …

Edward Scissorhands
Tim Burton was born in 1958 & raised in the suburban city of Burbank California. Burton was a recluse & very shy. He loved to draw and actually had a sketch of the little boy with the scissors for hands, …

Lord of the Rings - The Motion Picture Trilogy
Wait and buy the extended versions, which follow the original novels much more closely. In both of the previous installments the longer version was vastly superior to the theatrical relase. I can't imagine …
reviewed Big Fish. April 30, 2004
Big Fish
Pros: visuals, special effects, Buscemi, Finney, DeVito, fun to watch     Cons: basic story is weak, McGregor's accent     The Bottom Line: This bottom line's not …
reviewed The Wizard of Oz. April 21, 2004
The Wizard of Oz
Anyone growing up in the 60's can remember that this movie was an annual must see tv event! Even 40 years later it still is as fresh as when it was first released. They don't make em like this anymore …

Peter Pan
I have seen several versions of the Pan story (notably Disney's and Mary Martin's) and while this story are great special effects and fairly good directing, this movie lacked the fun of those other versions. …

Troll (1986)
Noah Hathaway, Michael Moriarty, Shelley Hack, Sonny Bono, Julia Louis-Dreyfus along with the incomparable June Lockhart & her real-life daughter Anne Lockhart sharing a role!  EXCELLENT PG-13 …

Pros: Nothing     Cons: Bad FX, boring, terrible pacing and lame jokes and action.     The Bottom Line: A very underwhelming and bland experience, do not waste …

Lord of the Rings_The Return of the King
Why do I need to write about something that swept through the Oscars? Because it is that good, if not better! The movie is 3 1/2 hours long and my only complaint is that it had to end!There are some really …

Lord of the Rings_The Return of the King
The only thing bad I can say about this movie is that I didn't want it to end! Just as good as the first two (I wonder why this was the only one to win Best Picture). If you are unfamiliar with the books …

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl
"Pirates" is a fun romp of a film. It has to be considering it is based on the amusement park ride of the same name. Johnny Depp does a good job as Captain Jack Sparrow. He seems to be about one swig …

DVD front
I was not especially taken with Peter Jackson's films, but was sufficiently intrigued by them to read the story, and wasn't especially swayed by that either - Tolkein's masterwork is a heavily over-written …
